The Occupation Of Jedha

It's one of the most awe inspiring visuals in the Star Wars saga, and now it's an awe inspiring creation in bricks, the Imperial occupation of Jedha. Builder one case has absolutely nailed the look in this nearly 5000 piece construction, from the color variations in the rock strata, to the scale of the city, to the perfectly scaled Star Destroyer, it's all jaw dropping. Technically this is a micro build, but when it's something this large and epic, that's easy to forget.

Ryder's U-Wing

Master Star Wars vehicle builder Inthert took a U-Wing and broke it. ...Not really. Creating partially damaged iconic Star Wars ships and vehicles make them look like something new all together is something I really like to see often. This more rustic, cargo-carrying U-Wing design fits in this category perfectly, and is unique on its own with its exposed parts. Still recognizable as a U-Wing, but also looking like something new on its own, this ship is a fine addition to any modified Star Wars vehicles collection.

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here

Death Trooper

Rogue One has a few things unique to the Star Wars universe, which always struck me as a little odd since it's a prequel to A New Hope. For instance take the Death Troopers, Director Krennic's personal hit squad. We've never seen them before, at least not in the movies. Then again they're so badass I don't care. Check out this rendition by builder nobu_tary, complete with Jen's stormtrooper doll, perfect.
